One of our own in the NASCAR community has died and his family needs our help with funeral expenses. After battling cancer for 10 years, David R. Smith, former famed jackman and crew chief for the #3 GM Goodwrench Chevy, passed away on June 30th. His faithful wife Karen was by his side. David, a man of great faith, went to meet his Lord in Heaven. But, since David has been so sick for the past decade and Karen as been his caregiver, neither have been able to work. They've lived off social security and the generosity of friends. To bury David, Karen needs help. There's a very small life insurance policy, not enough to give him a decent burial. So, I'm asking that we all contribute a little. Together, we can help this family - a family that has been a member of our own racing family in some capacity for over 40 years. Rest in Peace David R. Smith. Your work on earth is done!

Karen Smith wants you all to know how grateful she is. She never asked for this help. She only let her situation be known to a few friends who knew the financial struggles they had with a decade of fighting David's cancer. While it has been a blessing for her to receive this gift, many of you have quietly said what a blessing it was for you to give. Contributions will go toward helping Karen and the boys bury David in the cemetery near his dad and brother. Without your help, it would have been a struggle to make this happen. While we have not reached the goal for the complete cost of the funeral, we believe God will provide. Thanks, again, to all those who have helped. Caron Myers
